City of Wanneroo roads considered for improvements

Published Thursday, 23rd June 2022

Eight road projects in the City of Wanneroo are being considered for State Government funding for improvements or rehabilitation works.

Main Roads funding sought

At its June meeting, Wanneroo Council supported submitting applications for road projects in Hocking/Pearsall, Darch/Landsdale, Girrawheen, Madeley and Wangara under the Main Roads WA 2023-24 Metropolitan Regional Roads Program (MRRP).

If approved, the works will cost around $7.5 million in total and will include the duplication of Lenore Road between Kemp Street and Elliot Road to facilitate forecast traffic growth in Hocking/Pearsall and an upgrade to the intersection of Mirrabooka Avenue and Kingsway in Darch/Landsdale to provide a dual lane roundabout to reduce congestion.

The submission also includes funding for the rehabilitation and resurfacing of Gnangara Road between Wanneroo Road and Atwell Street.

The MRRP funding would support two-thirds of all eight projects, with the remaining third to be funded from other sources managed by the City.

Applications will be considered by the Metropolitan Regional Road Group in the coming months, with successful projects expected to be announced early next year.

Deputy Mayor Brett Treby said the proposed projects had a high potential of success based on previous years’ submissions.

“We have carefully chosen projects that best meet the grant funding program’s selection and assessment criteria to maximise the opportunity for funding under the MRRP’s competitive process,” he said.

“We will continue to advocate for support from all levels of government for road projects that further our commitment to being a safe, accessible and connected City.”

Any projects that are not approved for MRRP funding will continue to be monitored by the City and alternative funding options will be sought.
